New Twists on Breakfast Classics ~ A Little Birdie Told Me... No. 37

Sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.
--Lewis Carroll

Welcome to 
"A Little Birdie Told Me..." Tuesday!
If you're here to share a craft, recipe or project post,
you'll find the linky and the specifics on how to 
join the party after the features below.


Breakfast has certainly come a long way since the first recorded use of the word in England back in 1463. When you think of breakfast, do you think of pancakes and waffles, eggs and bacon, or a "Venti" nonfat soy latte on the go? If you were a peasant back in the Middle Ages, your morning meal might have involved an oatcake or bowl of porridge, washed down by a tankard of ale.  

I'm pleased to be sharing, by way of last week's party participants, three delicious and delightful breakfasts. Pull up a chair and your tankard of ale, but please check your bowl of porridge at the door.
